Trimming dog's hair, Cyclaman and Birds;



Being Trimmed at the DIY store
At the one corner of a big DIY store in my city, I happened to see a dog being trimmed its hair. (First Time for me to see ;-)  The cute puddle seemed to know what is going on and really well-behaved.  And the handsome young man is doing good job (tenderly) for her or him.   Although I couldn't see  lovely finished style, I was happy to be able to see sweet scene ♡♡♡


Cyclamen and  Birds
Last year on a cultural festival at the agricultural high school close to my house,  many cyclamens were being sold. I felt THANKFUL for the students' work and people looked happy buying them.
Hawfinch and Pale thrush 
With different tone of color, from in front of my house.
                            Left; male                        Right; female   
I have no idea whether he is drinking water or having early dinner :-) 

Picture inside is my tiny yard from early Feb.   My husband had a cold at that time and then I caught it from him p;-)  As it's the Valentine month, I thought about helping each other;  Hope you all will have a sweet Valentine Month with your loved ones ♡♡♡

I have a BIG poodle and it is amazing how different he looks after I groom him! From rags to riches! I Love cyclamen so delicate. Your frames around the photos are so delicate and pretty too. Talented!

Thank you Miyako and Happy Valentine's to both of you (and I hope you don't share any more colds). Your home looks cozy in the all the snow ... makes a lovely winter scene. Beautiful bird and cyclamens too. My in-laws had a dog that looked like that one and he loved being groomed ... it was as if he knew he was beautiful!

Aww cute woofie getting nice hair cut! When I stop by nearby pet store, I often see many dogs in the grooming room. I’m impressed that they all seem very relaxed like the sweet dog in your photos :-) Beautiful cyclamens grown by students and the bird video is so cute! I wonder if he was drinking water or having dinner, too :-)
Your garden is beautiful covered in snow! Wishing you and your husband a lovely Valentine’s Day! xo

Hello Miyako,
The poodle seems very content with all that attention!
Such a beautiful collection of cyclamens. I used to have one but that was a long time ago.
Those are very sweet photos of the Thrush.
I hope both you and your husband are over your colds now. The snowy scene looks so pretty! Take care and thank you for your lovely valentine wishes... sending them to you too.
Warm cheers, Sue xx

The cyclamen are gorgeous - my favorite colors are the white, and the light pink one! Oh, you got to know that in the Los Angeles area where I lived for 3+ decades, cutting a dog's hair is a big thing, there are plenty of places where it's done (they go beyond cutting, it is like a make-up makeover). Some dog owners go every month with their dog to have it done! (maybe Hollywood's influence:):) )
Wish a complete recovery for you both!

Lovely post. Indeed, the cyclamen are gorgeous. I’m glad our dog doesn’t need to be groomed. She hates to have her nails clipped. Have a wonderful week!

This is a comment for me from "Maggie, Normandy Life".
As this hadn't show up in my blog, pasting it.

Such a lovely post, Orchid, love the cyclamen the colours are so delicate. I have a white one in a shady part of the garden which comes back annually, I must go and look to see if is coming through yet. Your posts are always so prettily decorated, a real treat every Monday.
Happy MM

Cyclamen are so pretty. I had a poodle when I was younger and I did the "grooming". It's a big job and so nice to find someone who does it with such care. Cute dog, too! Love seeing the birds. Snow in your yard! So pretty. Hope you are over your cold. Happy Monday!

Gillena Cox said...

Always I enjoy your flowers and birds

Happy Mosaic Monday

much love...

Lorrie said...

Such pretty pots of cyclamen add a lot of cheeriness to February days. I have a pot of pink ones on the table. I'm sorry you've had a cold and hope you soon feel well again. Happy Valentine's Day to you and your husband.

Wonderful video of the thrush! Loved the photos. And what a well-behaved little poodle! Cute shots of him. Loved the pretty flowers for sale too.

Cyclamens are one of the few flowers that provide me with colour during the winter months.Enjoyed your post. Have a good week.

Cyclamens have very colorful and showy flowers. They attract attention for sure.

The red cyclamen is so vibrant - perfect for Valentine's Day! A loving day for you and your loved ones!

Cute photos of the dog trimming :) Cyclamen are so fabulous plants, but they don't like me - and always get yellow rapidly.
Wishing you Happy Valentine's Day ❤︎

Dearest Tamago,
Wow, looking at your photos of the poodle trimming, that is also quite an art and one hopes the y don't ever bite or react aggressive.
Love cyclamen, such an elegant plant with pretty leaves too.
Yeah, what is the bird picking up?
Your photo with the snow inside your picturesque garden is precious.
Sending you hugs,
Mariette

We've never owned a dog that needed trimming, so fun to see these pics!

What lovely flowers and the birds are cute, too.

What a sweet dog! He looks like he is taking his haircut with a good attitude! Thank you for linking up today!

Hello Miyako. I hope you and your husband are feeling better. Lovely post.. Michelle

Margaret Adamson said...

birds need to be eating a good part of the day and also they need water to soften food otherwise they would die. Love the dog images. Have a wonderful weekend.

Hello, Miyako, What a cute doggie. It is well behaved while getting groomed. The flowers are lovely, so colorful. The hawfinch is a beautiful bird, wonderful collection of photos. Sorry to hear you and your hubby were both sick, I hope you had a happy Valentine's Day! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. I appreciate your comment and visit. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend.
